The Plug has been Pulled

Well, Bill officially yanked my Katrina coverage watching. I was on CNN.com and getting worked up, and I've pretty much just been obsessed & depressed about it since Sunday night. So Bill pulled the visual plug. Too many images. He knows what that does to me.

I will take a carload of teddy bears to the shelter where some refugees are staying, though. At least I could do something, even if it's little bitty.

On a complete side note, but one that I've been thinking about since the hurricane hit, I had a good friend from college named Katrina, and she was always very proud of her name (she loved going to N'Awlins for Mardis Gras, too, but that's even further beside the point). Knowing her personality, she's probably very sad right now to have it associated with such devestation. And as this dear friend used to say, "It's true--it's not a farce." She got me saying it, too. You should start saying it, also. It would make her happy from afar. She's one of those people that I have on my "oh, crap, I wish I hadn't fallen out of contact with her" list.

Little bitty still makes a big impact :) Those teddy bears will be loved by those who recieve them! It's true, it's not a farce! ;)

I know what you mean about too many visual images. I was not working when 9/11 happened... all I did was watch TV. Not good.

"Its true, its not a farce!" reminds me of "Thats it...thats the whole thing". Ah...words from "Da King".

I know about those visual images. Send money but turn the tv off.
